holding a knife and that is when officers told the man to drop the knife. he didn't and so that is why officers felt that they had to shoot him. we're not -- we're unsure how many times he was shot. we are told he died of his injuries. at this point we foe that two officers who were involved in that shooting are now paid administrative leave. we are being told one has been with the department for three years the other one has been with the department 20 plus years. these other officers that are on the scene again are still gathering evidence, talking to witnesses, really still trying to piece together what happened here. and why this man was supposedly chasing at least one of the women with a knife. right now we're being told that the police spokeswoman is on her way so that we can get a little bit more details of what happened here. reporting live from fremont janine de la vega ktvu channel 2 news. time is 5:02.

away and then walk in because right now at this point, no one is being allowed in. if they were here when the incident happened and they could stay here, but some people who are just driving up and wanting to get home, they are not allowed to drive in because again this is still an active police investigation. we're also being told as far as in the city of fremont this is the first officer involved shooting of the year. reporting live from fremont janine de la vega ktvu channel 2 news. in overnight news a nail salon in pleasant hill badly damaged after it went up in flames. alex savidge joins us now from the strip mall where it all happened with more on what fire crews discovered that is making them call this fire suspicious. >> the arson investigator here on scene it appears someone intentionally set fire to this nail salon. the reason red flags were raised this morning is because of the molotov cocktail or what appeared to be a molotov cocktail found outside of this business when the first crews
arrived here. criminal investigation has been launched. work is being done inside this business. the fire was also suspicious because the front window of the place was broken. when the first crews got here. started around 11:30 last night at the magic touch salon. the alarm sounded inside the place. it's in a strip mall on contra costa boulevard. the fire inside was fairly small. crews knocked it out quickly but firefighters noticed what appeared to be an insipid area device. a beer bottle with some kind of liquid inside. a contra costa county fire investigator has been here here throughout the morning processing this scene. he is trying to figure out what was used to set this fire. he has ruled out any accidental causes. >> when we arrived as investigators at a fire scene, our first attempt is try to determine where the fire may have started. we try to get that to a small enough area as we can and once you determine the area where the fire started you may pretty much be on your hands and knees
sifting through fire debris. >> reporter: the fire investigator will have some of the debris samples collected to test for accelerants and that cocktail will be tested at a lab as well and tested for fingerprints as investigators try to key in on the arsonist. investigators thus far have not been able to reach the owner of this business. live this morning in pleasant hill alex savidge ktvu channel 2 news. four people are dead seven others are in the hospital following a head on crash south of sacramento. it happened at about 4:00 yesterday afternoon on northbound interstate 5 near the elk grove boulevard exit. the chp says an suv heading south on the highway carrying nine people lost control, crossed the center divide and hit a car that was heading north. the highway was shut down for several hours. the chp is now looking into what caused the crash. time now 5:35. both president obama and mitt romney making one final
